Nemesis was hatched in the summer of 2001. Mike Taylor and Jason Koerner had been playing in a band called Inidle, from which they departed. Each of them moved on to other projects. Eventually, in spring 2001, they resumed their partnership and decided to form what would become Nemesis. Since a few member changes, the lineup has been rock solid for seven months now. With the addition of DJ Rino to play on their album Retribution, he has now become a solid force taking their experimentation into a whole new level.
